      Rangers' Jesper Fast: Lands on scoresheet again

      Fast scored the game's first goal Tuesday night, leading to a 3-0 win over the Hurricanes. Fast now has goals in back-to-back contests as he's made good on his only two shot attempts over that span. The 23-year-old has three goals and two helpers with a 14:20 TOI average after 13 games, which tells us that he is doing well with only a modest amount of ice time in 2015-16.

      Rangers' Jesper Fast: Nets second goal in win

      Fast scored his second of the season in a 4-1 win over the Coyotes on Saturday. The 23-year-old Fast has two goals and four points through his first 12 games played. While It's nice to see the Swedish forward get on the board, the opportunities for fantasy impact come few and far between as he continues to log bottom-six minutes.

      Rangers' Jesper Fast: Could dress Thursday in Montreal

      Fast could dress in Thursday's tilt against Montreal reports Andrew Gross of The Record. Fast served as a healthy scratch in the team's last two tilts, including most recently for Tanner Glass in Tuesday's loss to Winnipeg. While the 23-year-old lacks the experience of the team's other fourth line forwards (Jarret Stoll, Dominic Moore), the young Swede's contributions to last season's playoff-run are clearly not forgotten. Either way, Fast's fantasy value is heavily impacted by his inability to get beyond fourth line duties.

    • Returning to team's fourth line unit

      News: Jesper Fast will start the season on the team's fourth unit reports Andrew Gross of The Record.
      Analysis: Although the team had several openings after saying goodbye to Carl Hagelin and Martin St. Louis in the offseason, it appears Jesper Fast will return to the team's fourth line. It's not all bad news as head coach Alain Vigneault will likely tinker all season and the youngster could learn a thing or two playing alongside Dominic Moore and newcomer Jarret Stoll. The 23-year-old Fast has six goals and 14 points through 69 career NHL games.
    • Fast Re-Signs With Rangers

      News: Jesper Fast signed a two-year, $1.9 million contract with the Rangers on Wednesday, Larry Brooks of the New York Post reports.
      Analysis: Jesper Fast will return to a bottom-six role with the Rangers in 2015-16. He registered a total of 14 points in 58 games with the big club last season, numbers he will hope to improve on in what will likely be his first full season in the NHL in 2015-16.
    • Rangers' Fast Bags Pair Of Goals In Game 3 Defeat

      News: Jesper Fast scored on both of his shot attempts in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime defeat to the Lightning in Game 3.
      Analysis: Jesper Fast's first goal would give the Rangers a 2-0 lead in the first period, but that was hardly enough of a cushion in what has been a high-scoring series. The 23-year-old has three goals and three assists across 15 postseason contests, giving the Rangers useful production next to Derek Stepan.
    • Rangers' Fast Gets Fourth Point Of Series

      News: Jesper Fast chipped in an assist in Sunday's Game 6 triumph over the Capitals.
      Analysis: Jesper Fast has now gathered a point in four of the six second-round contests, which will probably keep him locked into a second-line role for the duration of the Rangers' postseason stay. However, he's not seeing any time on the team's power play yet, limiting his upside to an extent in daily formats.
    • Rangers' Fast Tallies First Of Playoffs

      News: Jesper Fast scored his first goal of the playoffs in Thursday's Game 1, and it was a big one, as he potted the game-tying tally with 4:39 remaining in an eventual 2-1 loss to the Capitals.
      Analysis: It's certainly not Jesper Fast's fault that the Rangers ended up taking this loss on a goal in the final seconds, as his clutch tally ended a 55-minute stretch of futility against Washington netminder Braden Holtby. The Swede is going to be seeing more ice time moving forward while Mats Zuccarello (head) is on the shelf, so this is a positive sign for him even in a losing effort.
    • Rangers To Plug Fast In Zuccarello's Spot?

      News: Jesper Fast practiced with the team's third line on Tuesday, reports Andrew Gross of The Record.
      Analysis: Scoreless through five playoff games (one point in eight career games), Mats Zuccarello's (head) injury seemingly gives the 23-year-old an opportunity for more minutes. While it's just practice and we could see a different combination for Game 1 against the Capitals, considering Jesper Fast's skill-set is similar to that of Zuccarello's, it's looking more likely the Swede will lineup with Kevin Hayes and Carl Hagelin on Thursday night. Fast logged 14 points in 58 games this past regular season.
    • Rangers' Fast Tallies Goal Saturday

      News: Jesper Fast tallied a goal in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Capitals.
      Analysis: Jesper Fast's empty-net marker gave him his sixth goal and 14th point in 58 games this season. While the 23-year-old is bound to surpass those marks in the seasons to come, the Rangers' exceptional depth at forward will likely preclude Fast from logging much meaningful ice time on a scoring line during the playoffs.
